Summary

Robert Greene is a master guide for millions, distilling ancient wisdom and philosophy into essential texts for seekers of power, understanding and mastery. Now he turns to the most important subject of all - understanding people's drives and motivations, even when they are unconscious of them themselves.

We are social animals. Our very lives depend on our relationships with people. Knowing why people do what they do is the most important tool we can possess, without which our other talents can only take us so far. Drawing from the ideas and examples of Pericles, Queen Elizabeth I, Martin Luther King Jr, and many others, Greene teaches us how to detach ourselves from our own emotions and master self control, how to develop the empathy that leads to insight, how to look behind people's masks, and how to resist conformity to develop your singular sense of purpose. 

Whether at work, in relationships, or in shaping the world around you, The Laws of Human Nature offers brilliant tactics for success, self-improvement, and self-defence.

Lots of knowledge, but too much to grasp

this book is filled with so much information and knowledge, that I felt a bit lost and overwhelmed by it.

a workbook or a more structured summary would be a great advantage. some practical guidance for implementing these ideas into daily life would also be appreciated.

A Masterpiece

Robert Greene is the modern day Napoleonic strategist,Nietzsche,Emerson all rolled into one.I came into the Robert Greene world from the success genre of Napoleon Hill and Tony Robbins etc. as well as as considerable reading of the Stoics.I can safely say Mr Greene surpasses all others and goes so much deeper into the human psyche that I can only say that he has completed the work of the greatest masters of human psychology in history.I see this book as a culmination of his genius which we have followed for years in books like Power,Mastery,seduction etc.I am only afraid what would be left for him to produce having conquered this genre so completely.
